Brief Description of Work: The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) network for mental health is an independent, service-user-led charity that connects people with experience of mental health issues to give us a stronger voice in shaping policy and services. NSUN seeks to improve service user involvement by supporting people with lived experience to gain proper input into the commissioning of services they use. In 2013 NSUN produced a report reviewing VBC and in June 2014 in partnership with Mind we produced the Influencing Mental Health Services, guide to Values Based Commissioning.
